Barbarian Conquerors of Kanahu

Selected Option:

Welcome to Kanahu, a dangerous world of pulp fantasy abounding with dinosaurs, Cthulhoid creatures, giant insects, crazed sorcerers, muscled barbarians, and alien invaders. Barbarian Conquerors of Kanahu™ (BCK) presents a host of new monsters, magical items, technology, spells, and variant rules packaged together in this gonzo world. In BCK you get: 

  • A set of 7 new races and 19 new character classes inspired by pulp fantasy. Take flight as an insectoid sorceress as a Bugman Ovate. Serve – or resist – the forces of Chaos as a Deep One Hybrid. Hunt down your prey as a cold-blooded Geckoman Stalker. Master the scientific sorceries of the Outer Darkness as a half-human half-Visitor Nephilim. Wander an alien landscape as a Terran Cosmonaut.
  • Over 60 new monsters. Hunt the fearsome Titanosaur in the jungles of Kanahu. Flee from alien abduction by Visitors in flying saucers. Battle with warbots amidst ruined starships. Confront undead serpentmen in the ruins of lost Sakkara.
  • Over two dozen new spells designed to work with the new classes and game mechanics. Summon deep ones to serve you from the abyssal waters. Blast the positronic brain of robots and machines with a network shutdown. Walk as a ghost in the unseen world. 
  • An entirely new system for alien technology, with dozens of alien artifacts. Learn how to use alien artifacts by conducting research, experimenting in the field, learning from a teacher, or using alien knowledge. If you master scientific sorcery, you can arm yourself with a fusion launcher, laser rapier, and force field belt; pilot flying saucers, hoverbikes, or battle tanks; reprogram robots to serve you; and even learn the secrets of cloning and resurrection.
  • A set of new rules for heroic adventuring, including fate points, heroic funerals, warrior codes, critical hit tables, new special maneuvers, updates to the mechanics for thief skills…
  • And much, much more!

The Barbarian Conquerors of Kanahu setting sourcebook is designed for use with the Adventurer Conqueror King System™ (ACKS™) but is readily compatible with other fantasy role-playing games built on the same core rules. 

If you like ACKS, be sure to check out Adventurer Conqueror King System Imperial Imprint, the revised and expanded edition of ACKS, crowdfunding now at Kickstarter.

Please note that the interior of the book is black and white. We offer it for sale as standard color because color printing offers richer, deeper, blacks on better paper.

The aliens are definitely Greys / Zeta Reticulan types. There are reptilian Lizardmen but they don't shapeshift, they're just beastmen.

When I download the pdf, is has the Heroic Fantasy Handbook cover. Fortunately it seems like the rest of the pdf is fine.

Dang. When we updated the file with bookmarks there was a mix-up. I will get this sorted ASAP. Thanks for the alert. My apologies!

Scanned image
These products were created by scanning an original printed edition. Most older books are in scanned image format because original digital layout files never existed or were no longer available from the publisher.

For PDF download editions, each page has been run through Optical Character Recognition (OCR) software to attempt to decipher the printed text. The result of this OCR process is placed invisibly behind the picture of each scanned page, to allow for text searching. However, any text in a given book set on a graphical background or in handwritten fonts would most likely not be picked up by the OCR software, and is therefore not searchable. Also, a few larger books may be resampled to fit into the system, and may not have this searchable text background.

For printed books, we have performed high-resolution scans of an original hardcopy of the book. We essentially digitally re-master the book. Unfortunately, the resulting quality of these books is not as high. It's the problem of making a copy of a copy. The text is fine for reading, but illustration work starts to run dark, pixellating and/or losing shades of grey. Moiré patterns may develop in photos. We mark clearly which print titles come from scanned image books so that you can make an informed purchase decision about the quality of what you will receive.
Original electronic format
These ebooks were created from the original electronic layout files, and therefore are fully text searchable. Also, their file size tends to be smaller than scanned image books. Most newer books are in the original electronic format. Both download and print editions of such books should be high quality.
